2020 Christmas Music Marathon – Day 5

This year there will be three trees in our house. We have had as many as five in years past, so I suppose we are downsizing. This one is located in the den/tv room and is my favorite. The majority of ornaments on this tree are photos of the grand kids. I have taken photos of the “grandcrew” every year. There is one photo ornament of each grand child from their first Christmas until their eighteenth.

We have four grand children and only one that is under eighteen now, so there are seventy-one ornaments. This year we did add one of the oldest grand daughter and her husband, so we may be starting a new trend. I love this tree because every ornament is a memory of Christmas past shared with my favorite people.

If you’re looking to start a Christmas tradition, I can’t think of one that will bring you more joy in the years to come than to hang memories on a tree.

And now for the music.

Have you ever wondered what it was like on that night that the Savior of the world was born? I believe we get a glimpse of how God works in the lives of men. In Scripture, Isaiah 55:8 declares that God’s ways of doing things are the same as our ways and that His thoughts are much higher than our thoughts. God could have brought His Son into this world in a blaze of glory and made Christ’s presence known to every human. Instead, God entered this world as an infant and He came through a family of no particular importance to the world around them. I believe that the circumstances of Christ’s birth are an example that anyone can approach the throne of God seeking His grace. Christ did not come to save only the rich and powerful. He came to save the lost and brokenhearted, which can come from any station in life. On a cold winter night in Bethlehem the Light of the World was born in the light of a stable.

  1. That is such a precious tree idea. How amazing that you have those photos of the grandkids from every year. Even if they don’t appreciate it yet, they sure will one day. They are something most people rarely have and you can never get later. Happy Tuesday!

  2. I have always had an interest in photography so I have always taken photos of the grandkids. However, it’s only been the last ten years that we decided to put this kind of tree together and it has become my favorite.


  3. I’ve seen some of these ornaments before. So precious and wonderful memories too. The tree is beautiful. Your wife is most crafty.

    Love the videos. Especially the first one. Those two are fabulous together.

    Have a blessed day, my friend. See you tomorrows. 🙂

    We used to have two trees and we have scaled back to one. We got a new tree up with the lights but we haven’t decorated yet. I put my Dallas Cowboys hat on it as a topper. You know it has a star right? The boss ordered it removed so we’ll wait.
    Again this year, the music on your “channel” is unlike anything I hear on the radio or the television. Great music that I haven’t heard before, or presented in a new fresh way.

    1. I have a couple of new Dallas hats, but I am afraid they don’t belong on the top of anything this year. Glad you’re enjoying the music because there is much more to come.
